Home at Last

The first thing we do when we visit Slovenia after unpacking is head straight down to our favourite cake shop.  It's not in the main square and unless you have a roam you wouldn't know it was there.  Which is a shame as the cakes and pastries are far superior to other bars and cafes.  The owner is friendly too.

I managed to scratch together a title out of three different alphas after running out of certain letters again...worked out quite well in the end though.
Call us creatures of habit (or just that we know what we like) but on our first visit of the holiday we always have the local speciality, Gibanica and a glass of the locally brewed beer, Union (pronouncing the U with an Oo.....this is so important as although the Slovenians are terribly clever and speak loads of languages, if you don't pronounce it this way they don't seem to have a clue what you are talking about.).

I see Nigel visibly relax before me after taking the first sip of his beer and a mouthful of cake.

Ahhh, welcome home.

  5. Sounds lovely :) Great page and love the alphabet is always the problem of what to do with the remaining random letters you get left, and that is a great way of using them up :)
